I really enjoyed the diversity that Moore picked for this collection of stories. From established authors to new voices, there is a discovery for everyone as well as comfortable delights. I found I relished the new talent: fresh, brazen and quick; whereas the older generation has a real talent for manipulating language through subtlety and distance. Not all will appeal, but I found that all the stories are very well balanced - I didn't find a weak story in the bunch, which is a testimony to our rich literature. I do have one regret: Moore did not include any Canadian Francophone writers, many of whom are translated. I thought that was a sore oversight.

Good stories. Interesting to find many powerful portraits of men here. I especially enjoyed the open-ended stories that carry on in your head ... and even make you a little mad at the author for not wrapping it up for you.
